Biometrics and ID Management - COST 2101 European Workshop, BioID 2011 Brandenburg (Havel), Gemany, March 2011 Proceedings

This volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences (LNCS) constitutes the final publication of the EU COST 2101 Action “Biometrics for Identity Documents and Smart Cards,” which has been successfully running during the years 2006-2010. One of the many valuable outputs of this initiative is the realization of a new scientific workshop series, dedicated to the project’s goals: the “European Workshop on Biometrics and Identity Management (BioID).” This series started in 2008 with the first workshop at Roskilde University, Denmark (BioID 2008) and continued with a second event, hosted by the Biometrics Recognition Group (ATVS) of the Escuela Polit´ecnica Superior, Universidad Aut´onoma de Madrid, Spain in 2009 (BioID MultiComm 2009). From the very beginning, the research papers of BioID workshops have been published as Springer LNCS volumes; vol. 5372 (2008) and vol. 5707 (2009).

Continuing the series, this present volume collects together the submitted research papers accepted for the Third European Workshop on Biometrics and Identity Management (BioID 2011), taking place during March 8–10, 2011 at Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany. The workshop Call for Papers was open to the entire research community and all submissions underwent a double-blind review process by the workshop Scientific Committee. Readers will see that the event attracted an interesting mix of papers, with the wideranging topic coverage which is to be expected from a field as diverse as that addressed by this workshop.

Biometrics and Identity Management

The scope of this first COST 2102 open workshop covered all the research aspects of the Action, from biometric data quality, through biometric templates and modalities, to biometric attacks and countermeasures, as well as biometric interfaces and standards. These proceedings contain the revised papers that were presented during the workshop. Position papers by invited speakers presented at the workshop are also included.

Biometric ID Management and Multimodal Communication

This volume contains the research papers presented at the joint COST 2101 & 2102 International Conference on Biometric ID Management and Multimodal Communication. The aim of COST 2101 is to investigate novel technologeis for unsupervised multimodal biometric authentication systems using a new generation of biometrics-enabled identity documents and smart cards. COST 2102 is devoted to developing an advanced acoustical, perceptual and psychologial analysis of verbal and non-verbal communication signals originating in spontaneous face-to-face interaction, in order to identify algorithms and automatic procedures capable of recognizing human emotional states. The conference focused on both Action-specific and joint topics, including physiological biometric traits, transparent biometrics and smart remote sensing, biometric vulnerabilities and liveness detection, data encryption for identity documents and smart cards, quality and reliability measures in biometrics, multibiometric templates for next generation ID documents, operational scenarios and large-scale boimetric ID management, standarsd and privacy issues for biometrics, multibiometric databases, human factors and behavioural patterns, interactive and unsupervised multimodal systems…
